We arrived on a prefect late morning. Sunny skies and temperatures in the low 70's. Every where we turned there was activity by reenactors of the time period. Bagpipers and drums were playing, squads of soldier were in marching drills, canon squad was practicing and firing the big canons, soldiers were shooting their muskets and Sargent's were barking out orders. You felt like you were a part of history and in fact you where. This citadel or fort is HUGE. It is a 19th century fortification with steep masonry walls and a ditch surrounding the outside walls of up to 30 feet deep. Very Impressive! There is a vast amount of exhibits within the citadel, various activities going on all day, the Nova Scotia Army Museum is located here and a film about the D-Day landing in 1944. Depending on your interest you could spend a hour to 3 hours here easily. The views of the city below are also impressive. Become a part of history by visiting this site.
